Oswayo Valley Memorial Library News

Support the Buzz: Did you know honeybees are responsible for one out of every three bites of food we eat? Interested in finding out more about honeybees and beekeeping basics? Join us for an hour on Monday, October 17th, at 6 p.m. at the library! John and Joan Bradley will discuss a few aspects of beekeeping and explain why bees are so very important to our local food supply.
